Franklin is just southwest of Milwaukee, Wi.
The pond is for water control in our neighborhood and is a good size. The fish was seeded, hadn't known how big they were until this heron tried to eat one (or more) and failed.
This blue heron was fishing in the pond in the backyard and caught this huge fish. Walking to the side of the pond to eat, he found out it was too big to swallow. After trying several times, he gave up and left it on the shoreline. He went back into the pond to try again. Realized there was another partially eaten fish from earlier on the shoreline as well.
